The Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (BMASK) commissioned the establishing of a Co-ordination Unit for the entire country at the Centre for Social Innovation in 1999. The Co-ordination Unit of the Territorial Employment Pacts will continue to advise the TEPs until the end of 2013. The activities of the Kooo are funded within the framework of the Austrian Operational Programme for Employment 2007-2013 (ESF).
From the very beginning, when national coordination activities were initiated in 1999, Kooo has regarded its efforts as a service to the pacts. In the evaluation of ESF 2000-2006 / Objective 3 / Priority 6, the pacts rate cooperation with Kooo as being very helpful. Specifically, the aid provided by Kooo is appraised „as a supporting factor in achieving objectives“.
